New ThermaBlend® Test Cooker

Mepaco has a new test cooker for processors who have new products or recipes that require cooking and blending. The test cooker is a 75-gallon ThermaBlend® unit with steam injection, vacuum, pneumatic covers and doors, and dual ribbon agitators.

The ThermaBlend® is designed specifically for large scale batch operations. All of the components from the tub to the agitators are custom designed to meet the needs of the blending application. It is designed with wrap-around steam jacket, fabricated by ASME certified welders, which offers massive heat transfer efficiencies.

Inquire about a trial of this test cooker in your facility and experience:

  • Quick homogeneous blending while minimizing shear.
  • A durable, bi-directional scraper system keeps the heat exchange surface clean, minimizing burn-on while optimizing heat transfer.
  • The massive heat transfer area, highly efficient agitators and patent pending scraper system dramatically reduce process time over conventional batch cookers.
  • Vacuum cooking to further reduce process time.

The controls provided on the test cooker provide flexibility for a rigorous test, including:

  • Status Monitoring
  • Alarm Indication/History
  • Alternating Mixing
  • Modulated Steam Jacket
  • Cooking to Temperature
  • Pull Vacuum on Product
  • Up to 30 recipes
  • Temperature Setpoints
